I am an academic and writer living in Melbourne. I love to travel and I also love writing about all the things Melbourne, regional Victoria and other parts of Australia have to offer.
Now that Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's EVITA is coming to the Arts Centre Melbourne this summer, it's time to get into the Argentian spirit of things. Drink, food, entertainment will surely entice you to fun pop-up beer garden which will open on December 4th, 2018 and run until the end of February.
Stomping Ground Co. in Collingwood has certainly made its mark on Melbourne's drinking and eating scene. Known for its large variety of craft beers brewed on site, its delicious food and its cool spaces for families and groups, it is now extending its reach and mark even further.
As it takes over the Arts Centre Melbourne forecourt, Stomping Ground La Boca will make you think you have landed in Argentina. How could you not think that with a mix of food, culture, music and live entertainment with Argentinian inspired performances, tango lessons and much more? You will be fully immersed in Latin American culture without leaving Melbourne.
There will, of course, be Stomping Ground Brewing Co's locally brewed beers, including a new Argentinian-inspired lager brewed exclusively for the beer garden. For those who prefer their drink made of grapes, there will also be a range of Argentinian wines. Delicious food from Asado by San Telmo will ensure your taste buds have a great experience too. Who could resist Latin American food at its best; traditional beef empanadas, cheese empanadas, Choripán, an Argentinian chorizo roll with chimichurri; Lomito, an O'Connor's grass-fed steak sandwich; Ensalada, a coal roasted vegetable salad with chickpeas and ancient grains; and Papas, Argo style fries with chipotle all waiting for you. And for those who love dulce de leche, ice cream and cookies made with this lovely unique Latin American caramel cream will transport you to paradise. Food will be available at the Arts Centre restaurants.
